Brand: J.S. Staedtler
Made in: Germany
The bottom Mars appears to be much older than the top model.......but looks can be deceiving as it is all about the storage of the pencils.
Long before J.S. Staedtler founded his pencil making factory within Nuremberg’s old city walls back in 1835, the STAEDTLER family had been hand-making this well-loved writing instrument for generations already. In fact, the roots can be traced back to 1662, the year in which first references to Friedrich Staedtler as a pencil-making craftsman were made in the city annals.
